SOBear – The Fluffy Bartender That Witholds Your Booze!

sobearFed up of surly bar-staff telling you that you’ve already had waaaaaaay too much to drink?

Would it ease the pain any if a cute little stuffed panda witheald your booze?

Nah – thought not.

That doesn’t stop the  SOBEaR, a DIY teddy bear with a built-in breathalyzer, from being totally cool.

All you have to do is press the “breathe + pour” button on his foot, which will then prompt the user to blow into the cuddly panda’s face.

Using LED lights as a visual scale, SOBEaR will then determine how wasted—or sober—you are, and will then proceed to pour your drink in accordance to your current level of sobriety.

If you’re completely smashed, SOBEaR will know to only pour you a drink from the bottle of cranberry juice in his right hand.

I’d be tempted to swap the bottles of mixer and spirit after 4 drinks or so… but that would kinda defeat the objective.

Watch the panda barman in action below!

Thanks to jmsaavedtra for this madness!
